Dave Portnoy Says the Will Smith Slap to Chris Rock was Fake?

Written by Nate

During the 2022 Oscars tonight, actor Will Smith went berserk and slapped fellow actor Chris Rock—leading to an uncensored rant live on TV.

But for certain people, like Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy, some believe the whole slap and ‘fight’ was staged.

As you can see in the clip below, Portnoy went on a ‘deep dive’ and came up with his own result on the Oscars slap fiasco. He says that Rock’s face was moving towards Smith’s hand as Chris was about to get slapped on slow mo.

Don’t know about all of you who have been reading our posts on the story, but we probably agree with Brett here and say that Chris was trying to avoid being slapped.

Though Will shouted to keep his wife Jada’s name out of his mouth, hopefully the beef does turn out to be staged and not be real. As far as we all see, the way Will was cussing at Chris, it looks real from our eyes.
